Review Summary

This was our first family cruise.  I chose Carnival b/c I heard it was kid friendly. Overall, we had an amazing time.  The food was great, there were many options, and the lines weren't that bad (except for the pizza).  My cabin was OK.  The ship was older and it felt a little dated.  I thought the pools were smalls but it was sufficient for my 9-year-old.  I was very disappointed that when I booked the cruise, it had basketball courts.  I was very disappointed upon my arrival that it did not.  There was not as much for the kids to do as advertised but they did have a good time.
